N.T. Wright on the future of the Western Church and the post-post-modern Christian faith.
I find this quite fascinating and have given a lot of thought to what the church in North America might look like in the near and mid-term future. I personally am not looking to see a growth in numbers, but I do expect to see a deeper and stronger faith in those who name the name of Jesus. I expect to see a slow abandonment of the American machine/consumer/business model of doing church with a renewed emphasis on walking in “the way of Jesus.” I expect to see greater unity among the divergent tribes within the church and a shift from large/mega churches to smaller community based faith communities.
Tell me what you think the church in North America will look like in 10, 20 and 30 years out. Be brave and express yourself.
